Paralympic multi-medallists Jody Cundy, Hannah Cockroft and Sarah Storey are amongst numerous Paralympians who are supporting ParalympicsGB’s Sports Fest, which will be held at the EIS Sheffield on April 26 and 27.
The attending athletes will participate in the Meet the Medallists sessions, where they will be available to answer questions, sign autographs and have their photo taken. They will also help out in the main hall, encouraging attendees to try out their sport.
Multi-medallist in Swimming and Cycling and winner of five Paralympic golds, Jody Cundy will be present on Saturday April 27. He is fully committed to encouraging more disabled people to try out sport:
“I’m really looking forward to attending Sports Fest”, he said. “Sports Fest is a fantastic opportunity for disabled people to trial for the sports, or to just try out new activities. On the cycling team we are always on the lookout for new talent and the ParalympicsGB Sports Fest is a fantastic opportunity for disabled people to trial for the sports, or to just try out new activities.”
Also in attendance will be Sports Fest ambassadors Will Bayley (Table Tennis) and Maddie Thompson (Wheelchair Basketball), as well as representatives from other Paralympic sports.
The ParalympicsGB Sports Fest will go to different regions in the UK in 2013 and 2014. Register for the Sheffield event or for more information on future events via www.paralympics.org.uk/sportsfest.
